Auction Gala planned for Nov. 16: Team Haverhill will hold its “All Aboard Auction Gala” on Nov. 16 at the Haverhill Country Club, 58 Brickett Lane.

Doors open at 6 p.m. This event will feature a live and silent auction to help Team Haverhill meet its goal of raising $25,000 to match Pentucket Bank’s generous $25,000 contribution towards the Art Walk at the Bradford Rail Trail. With Matt Noyes as the auctioneer, the funds raised will allow Team Haverhill to commission the Art Walk, in partnership with Pentucket Bank. The Art Walk will feature several large, permanent sculptures, and a handful of smaller sculptures that will likely rotate.

The Auction Gala, also sponsored by Pentucket Bank, will include a dinner and live entertainment by members of Spotlight Playhouse. Early bird tickets can be purchased for $40 each at www.teamhaverhill.org before Oct. 17. On Oct. 17, tickets are $50 each, while available. Be sure to buy your tickets early as this event is likely to sell out. For more information, or to learn how to donate an item to the auction before the Oct. 17 deadline, visit online at www.teamhaverhill.org or email artwalkbrt@teamhaverhill.org.
